Elton's Glasses


Yesterday after the Farmer's Market I decided to cruise through the Gay Pride event at the Railyard park. I caught this shot of this guy with his Elton John style glasses and Marilyn Monroe t-shirt near the entrance. It was pretty hot outside so it was a pretty quick cruise but I did manage to get some interesting photos.

Maybe that guy wasn't smiling 'cause it was too hot!

Interesting look!

So how hot was it? I think I'd have stayed in a cold bathtub, lol! :-) Cool shot, I wonder if he'll still wear those glasses when he's as old as Sir Elton John...

Wonderful catch. I remember very well growing-up listening to his music and being astonished with his bizarre costumes, and the big sunglasses being his trademark.

Excellent Randy. Is there a parade in Santa Fe?

Regina K said...

Yes, interesting.

This was the big gay pride day weekend in San Francisco too. You can just imagine (or maybe not) the event here in the mecca of gayness. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I've had good friends who were gay and no doubt they are the funniest people to hang around with.

Cool glasses!
We also have Gay Pride here today, 3 million people are expected, I'd like to take some shots but it's too crowded for me.

Sharon said...

Love those glasses! I bet you got some great photos.

VP said...

This should be full of interesting photo ops...

There was a Gay Pride party in Lisbon yesterday too and I bet I could have taken some cool shots, but I went to a dinner party and didn't managed to go there.

I like the glasses, they do remind me of Elton. I like the flags too, and the way they are displayed from the framework. Looks like it would have been a fun day if it wasn't so darn hot! We are having the same problem.

You'd go hysterical if I dressed like that! But he wears it so well.

Happy Pride Santa Fe!

I enjoy going to our local farmers market, lots to see & an ethnic food court of great variety!
How is the fires? Any hope of rain yet?

RedPat said...

Our Pride week started this weekend and the Dyke parade is next Sat with the big Pride parade on Sun with well over 1 million people! Too many for me!

Lynette said...

Neat shot. Reminds me that I lost my sunglasses yesterday. Yes, we do need sunglasses in Portland, Oregon. I'll have to get another pair soon because our sunny days are arriving more often now.

Elton looks a bit unsure about why he is having his picture taken . . .

Farmchick said...

I like his glasses. We met a neighboring farmer on the road (he was driving a four-wheeler) and he was wearing a pair of sunglasses like this. Totally cracked me up. Funny to see them here.

Allison said...

Really interesting, Randy. There was recently a huge gay pride demonstration in Bern. But I don't remember Marilyn being gay. :D

Rae Walter said...

That is such a great shot. Love the Munro T shirt combined with Elton John glasses.
